Extension Homemakers Meet at Brenda Reece Home
May 2, 2007 - The regular monthly meeting of the Town and Country Extension Homemakers was held on Tuesday, April 17, at the home of Brenda Reece. President Pam Bever called the regular meeting to order at 7 p.m. The pledge to the American flag and the Homemaker’s Creed were recited in unison. For devotions, Reece read from the book “God’s Little Devotional Book,” a story using Acts 20:35 for its guideline.
The roll call was answered by seven members on “What traditional food do you serve on Easter.” Those attending the meeting included Sonnie Thompson, Pam Bever, Diana Lee, Melody Zapf, Brenda Reece, Sandra Van Hoy, and Judy Martin.
For health and safety, Sandra Van Hoy presented the report on “Low-fat Foods Can Make You Fat.” She stated that many low-fat foods have added sweeteners making for a higher caloric content and many people mistakenly eat more since the food is labeled low-fat. Everyone should compare the labels.
For cultural arts, Sonnie Thompson reported on the recent county tea attended by several members. The program on Israel was very informative and very well presented. Thompson thanked Bever for paying the fees for club members that attended.
During the business session, Achievement Day was discussed and ideas for the summer outing were presented.
Van Hoy also gave a lesson on bottled water. Water is our most vital substance and is essential to life. People can survive up to six weeks without food, but only for about one week without water. Bottled water is regulated as a food by the Food and Drug Administration. Tap water may be safe for human consumption. Municipal water is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency, while tap water from private wells may not be. It is the responsibility of homeowners to have well water checked. The choice is up to the consumer on which type of water to use.
The next meeting will be Tuesday, May 15, at 7 p.m., at the home of Judy Martin.
